The Lyrics

I think this is a pretty fair representation of what college students go through the night before a final exam.
Weird voice-over guy:
Truth is, I thought that mattered... I thought the midterms mattered. But not as much... not compared to the final's matter.

Choir:
We'll be sleeping
When we're finished
With the finals

Band:
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram...

(Weird lady)
Studied the day away...
Night is the same, I say...

He drinks a soda drink,
He drinks a coffee drink,
His bladder's full so he
Gets up to take a pee.
He studies things so he doesn't fail the final.
His coffee helps him stay awake the entire night.

More coffee now, coffee now, coffee now...

My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram...

(Weird lady)
He just keeeps studying,
Tomorrow, won't know a thing...

He drinks a coffee drink,
And now he's really tweaked.
He can't sit still, so he
Gets up again to pee.
He studies 'cause he don't want to fail the final
He studies but won't remember a single damn thing.

I need another cup of coffee...

My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram...

(Bridge)

My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
I'm gonna take a final exam.
My head goes down,
Then pops back up again,
Tonight, I really have to cram (Repeat to end)

(Choir, over band)
We'll be sleeping
When we're finished
With the finals (Repeat to end)

(Weird lady, over choir and band)
Studied the day away...
Night is the same, I say...
He just keeeps studying,
Tomorrow, won't know a thing... (Repeat to end)
